Although there have been some technical issues with the new health care website, it is not a failure. There are some problems at the beginning of every big government project, and the new health care program is no different. The government is working hard to resolve the issues, and it will be fully functional soon.
The initial rollout of the HealthCare.gov website was not a total success, of course. There should have been a lot more testing towards volume as well as the system's integration with insurance providers and so on. However, now that the site has improved infrastructure, many people have reported success in terms of acquiring lower-cost health insurance.
